Along the Tirreno sea to the border with France, a trip to Liguria snakes along sea-side mountain cliffs and gentle hills covered with forests and terraced flower farms that, like an amphitheater, sit in front of the spectacle that is the sea.
A trip to Liguria brings enchanting scenarios where colorful houses along the coast or perched on the mountains, and beaches and small silent bays, create unparalleled emotions.
What are the main reasons for a visit in Liguria?
In Liguria relaxation is everywhere, along the panoramic roads on the sea, in the small silent bays, in the quiet monasteries, in the churches and the rocks suspended in front of the sea.
A visit in Liguria is all about active experiences outdoors: walking along paths next to the sea brings you to a world far away, where just a glance out to the water makes you sigh. Naturally a tour in Liguria means sea, beach, bays, ports, underwater nature and a lot of sun, in an always pleasant and welcoming location.
Ligurian cuisine can be also a reason on its own for a visit in Liguria: Ligurian Focaccia on its own is worth the trip, but do not forget the delicious basil pesto, oil and wines of excellence and naturally, the fish.
Things to see and things to do in Liguria
Riviera di Ponente is made of sandy beaches, villages spread out along the sea, medieval centers like Albenga or tourist destinations like Sanremo, dominated by the gentle hills with terraced cultivations of flowers.
Riviera di Levante glimmers with pearls suspended between mountain and sea, medieval villages on the sharp coast create magical landscapes with their colors. On a tour in Liguria you cannot miss seeing Portofino, a beautiful symbol of Italy, and the Cinque Terre. Along the medieval alleys you will find magical landscapes. In the end, there is Portovenere, another jewel of the coast to the east, a small village with picturesque colored homes.
Among the things to do in Liguria there is certainly an excursion on a ferry to the Cinque Terre, because seeing them from the sea means stepping back in time, when only fishermen’s boats broke the silence.
If you are a fan of marine nature and want to discover its secrets, a trip to Liguria is the perfect occasion: this sea is a paradise of marine mammals, and choosing an excursion on a boat with biologists, you can observe different types of whales.
Events and festivals in Liguria
Another international event in Liguria is the Festival of the Italian Song that takes place every year in February at Sanremo. The city of flowers fills with fans of music and transforms it for a few days into the center of Italian music.
Festivals in Liguria are not as important as in other regions of Italy; however, some maritime traditions have been maintained such as the Palio di San Pietro in Genoa on June 29 and the Palio del Golfo in La Spezia in early August, or the beautiful procession of boats in Camogli in August.
